Historically gold has been an important color in metaphysical healing for protection, cellular healing methods, and mental clarity. As gold represents the element of metal in the ancient discipline of Feng Shui, it also symbolizes heaven, promotes communication, enthusiasm, and independence. Feng Shui practitioners use gold to symbolize money, to attract financial abundance, and to stimulate an auspicious feel in any space.

Place a gold item in the far left corner of the garden or room, from the perspective of the entrance. You might want to consider visualizing gold around your home, pouring over your business, and even surrounding your body.
